Lincoln is one of eight government universities in New Zealand and is governed by a Council.


Lincoln University's Council is responsible for the strategic direction and performance of the University and ensuring that all statutory requirements are met.
The Council appoints the Vice-Chancellor who, as the Chief Executive Officer, is responsible for managing the key activities of the University.
The delivery of teaching and research is the responsibility of the University’s three faculties and two divisions:
The commercial business of the University is overseen by Lincoln University Hospitality Ltd, a wholly owned University company. This includes accommodation for students, catering, early childhood services, and the Recreation Centre.
Lincoln Agritech Limited, a 100% subsidiary of Lincoln University, is a leading-edge research and development company applying innovative engineering and science technologies to support agriculture, industry and the environment.
The University’s research outputs are overseen by Research Management Office, responsible for the delivery of excellence and relevance in research for the sustainable management of national resources to enhance social, environmental and economic viability.
